Opening weekend of "Monet: The Early Years"



Many of us are familiar with Claude Monet’s Water Lilies and other famous works like Woman with a Parasol. But, as anyone who’s been working in a specific field for an extended period of time knows, you’re piece de resistance doesn’t happen at the beginning of a career. Generally, a masterwork occurs after many years of mastering a craft — wild, right?

The Legion of Honor recognizes the importance of these early brushstrokes and is showing approximately sixty paintings from the initial phase, during the formative years of 1858 to 1872, of Claude Monet’s career. Oscar-Claude Monet was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. This exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Monet’s mastery before Impressionism, and includes paintings that are profoundly daring and surprising.

When: Saturday, February 25 — May 29, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Where: Legion of Honor Museum, Lincoln Park, 100 34th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121
